The hero of Rip-Roaring Russell and Russell Rides Again is now in the first grade and funnier than ever. He knows first grade is supposed to be about learning, but to rambunctious Russell, there's a lot more to life than that. It's planning a costume for Halloween, going to the movies-and getting lost, growing a potato plant in science. Russell gets his first report card-and decides his parents should get a report card too!
Now that he's six, Russell has some very important questions...like, 1. If he has to wear hand me downs, shouldn't bigger kids wear hand me ups? 2. If he can't say bad words, can he make up his own words when he's angry? 3. If he has to get a report card, isn't it about time his parents got one too?
